the treasury department showed a combination of more revenue like taxes and less spending. that led to a gap of $680 billion. guess what. it takes revenues and spending cuts to cut the deficit. they ought to work together on that. $2.08 billion is how much americans are spending on candy for halloween this year. never mind the declarations for the national retail federation. they expect an additional $2.6 billion on costumes and more people in my neighborhood i swear do halloween decorations than for the holidays. 75 days is how many we have before the primary for the special election for the late bill young and florida primary will be key to see the better position for the march 11 general election. the special election of one of the most competitive seats left in the house of representatives. 16 is how many democratic women senators all in fact signed in a private letter to hillary clinton urging her to run for president in 2016. they spilled the beans about it and a list in new york on monday, sources say barbara boxer led the effort that included other names mentioned as candidates inclu
that did tax reform and revisions that had revenue. and thank goodness. it was at least fair, where the 1% were getting 45% and the bottom 99% were getting 55%. what is the configuration now? i might venture to say, mr. jeffries, that the 99% are getting zero and the top 1% may be right now at 100%. so i'm asking for the conference to go and work for america. not this configuration, but to in the 99% investment america. to be able to take the c.b.c. budget and look at some of the tax reforms that could be utilized, to look at our job creation, which would include the maintenance and repair for public transit, highways, airports, port, railroad and bridges. the houston metro would appreciate having the opportunity to expand and create work from those who would on the rail lines to those who would build the rail cars, to those who would run it. and the opportunity for people going to work to ride on it. work force development programs such as the work force investment act, programs that i've had in times -- legislation i've introduced in times of high unemployment, to gively give those une
they knew what they were doing. even those folks couldn't afford it. it is not the rich paying more taxes. it is people who realize in order to buy insurance, which otherwise the irs is going to come after them, but in order to buy insurance, the premiums are up, the co pays are up, the deductibles are up sometimes up to several thousands of dollars. these folks are saying i can't afford health care and send my kids to college or buy the things i need to buy. has why it is outstanding -- that's why it is outstanding she says go and buy something else. the president has doctors on the team at the white house. but the moms and dads out there, the single moms and dads struggling to get through lost it and they don't know how to get it back. >> let's look atey -- lets 8 look. he said don't blame us. it is not the president's fault. >> the law does not say sears drops coverage. the law does not say you drop coverage. the insurance industry decides how it will make money. when the private companies decide that they will drop people or put them in the exchange you blame president obama. he is no
or medicaid reform even tax reform. those things are not going to happen for the reasons we just described. getting a number to fund through 2014 and avoiding kind of the harsh realities of sequestration would be good goals according to republicans and even some democrats. >> you know, ryan, i kind of think getting rid of sequestration, even if it means no revenue, might be a good deal. the assumption has always been republicans would be hurt so badly by defense cuts we can extract something. rand paul doesn't care about the defense cuts. why don't we jettison some of the crap, speaking about defense cuts. he wants more defense cuts. the idea this is somehow leveraged is maybe not that accurate. if you can unwind sequestration or put in a better bargain, if you will, and not get revenue, it still might be a good deal for democrats at this point. >> not a good bargain for the tea party. if you want to look for a sign of how much less power the tea party has now, look at what tom cole said, both sides won. he said more revenue, higher taxes, if they can do away with sequester, which is more
fees and taxes on their industry. there is probably a next bag for a lot of companies involved in health care. host: there was a story by "the lost angeles times." some of their health insurance is going to get pricier. our health insurance companies changing their policies for members because of the affordable care act? guest: let's talk about what is happening in the individual markets. there are policies that may not offer the same comprehensiveness of coverage that the affordable care act has. it covers maternity care and hospitalization and so on. they are getting noticed that the current policy will not meet the federal standards. this story has gone a lot of attention in the press this week. this coverage is no longer adequate. you can enroll in a different policy. you may pay more or less for your coverage. this is something that is upsetting to people who like the policy they had. host: jane up next from tampa, florida, uninsured. caller: good morning. i have not applied for the aca but my son did and he didn't have a problem with it. i do not understand why it is such
. for individual retirement accounts, i.r.a.'s, under the tax code. today retirees are more likely to rely on 401k's and i.r.a.'s and are less likely to have defined benefit plans from their employers. at the same time, the natural products have become increasingly complex. because the rules governing the rights of investors and the responsibilities of advisors are more than 35 years old, d.o.l. is attempting to modernize these rules and -- in order to reflect the changing nature of the retirement marketplace. given these realities it is necessary for the department to make sure that the professionals offering retirement advice have a duty to put their clients' interests first before their own or at very least tell their customers that they may be conflicting. at the same time the s.e.c. is considering moving forward on a rule making that would impose a uniform fiduciary standard of conduct for broker dealers and investment advisors, consistent with the dodd-frank act. this would ensure that whatever the business model, if an individual is providing personalized investment advice out securities to
their coverage. it's until they start getting the benefits of better coverage and the tax subsidies that come with it, which will make that coverage in many cases cheaper than the ones they currently have, that they won't understand or won't feel good towards obama, let's say. so that's why this whole rollout matters, they need to show the benefits of this in addition to the pain it was causing. >> still ahead the ceo of america's largest private health exchange joins us, how he is offering to bail out the government's troubled website.

us it wasn't a tax when it was. how many times did he tell us you could keep your insurance when you can't. this is an epidemic of dishonesty. and yet reporters won't report it, and poor ed schultz is saying that it's just so positive that nobody dares talk about it. >> bozell is wrong on all accounts. across the board he's wrong. hannity has now been reduced to defending junk insurance policies. and i wonder if he knows that most junk insurance policies only last about a year, when people actually figure out they have been hoodwinked into a policy that doesn't cover snot. that's why obama care is good. sean, i know, it's probably a little over your head. but i'll give it a shot again. a few weeks ago, i asked sean hannity to go face-to-face with me in a debate. instead of accepting what he has decided to do, this is his -- comes back with a challenge, he's playing clips of my show in his media clip or whatever, in his segment. look, i'm about the truth. and it would seem to me that if i'm wrong on these things, that handy would want to go face-to-face with me. i mean, you know, i'm
's the obstruction campaigns. they include gop darling like rush limbaugh and dick marsh urging people to avoid tax refunds as a ways to avoid or sign petitions rejecting their exchanges. then there's the gop icing on the cake. a two-week government shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. if the health care isn't dismantled. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington through baltimore and into town because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give this guy a honeymoon. they didn't give him nothing. they started going after him from the beginning. >> no. and they haven't learned their lesson. they just got their hat handed to them with their government shutdown and the debt ceiling, and you'd think they'd be chasing it a bit, but they're going to keep this up. it's an ideological war they're fighting where these tea party members, they think the government is bad. not only do they think that obama's government is bad, any government is bad. so they want government to fail. which is
equipment from fitting properly. henry viii introduced a gratuity tax on beards and mustaches. man that dude was nuts. four u.s. presidents have had a mustache. arthur, cleveland, roosevelt and taft. >> m mustache is a movember mustache. >> may look like he has a centipede on his upper lip but it is for a good cause. >> viral tidbits in mustaches. so not good. the juiciest viral videos on the internet, bring it. here are the day's best. >> viral list. >> first up, all aboard. in new york city, train conductors cast a point at every sharp sign. at every subway station. just, you know, to prove they're paying attention. they wanted to make it more fun by adding funny signs. in the workers are really enjoying it. some are a little reluctant but it is through jobs. colorful ride. taking on the bright streets of chile. they even meet some not so nice friends. >> very nice local. wild dinner guests. check out this russian video of a raccoon chomping down on some grapes. >> so may need need lessons in etiquette. >> fit strips are everywhere. we will show you how to make your own and they will look
the case like the grimes campaign did, a state that takes in more federal money than it pays back in taxes damaged kentuckyians. statewide you can run that way. but these house districts it's hard to sell that story. >> david ignatius people talk about the republican party. there's so many different republican parties. i talk about, you got the governors. and the success of the governors that they've had. then you got basically the senate wing of the republican party and then the house wing of the republican party. and what works for one definitely doesn't work for the other and certainly what works for some house members actually undermines presidential candidates who have any, any dream of being able to compete with hillary clinton. >> we'll see if the chris christie wing of the party, the party that will talk about how to govern and make a big state like new jersey work if that gets traction. one of the things i've been following the last few weeks is the backlash in some hard line republican house tea party districts against those tea party hard liners. for example, justin amosh from m
, the republican position, this no revenues thing, even if it's revenues to stop massive tax abuse, massive tax evasion, that kind of position in the end that leads us to cutting food stamps. today it starts. big cuts for the poorest people in the country, day after halloween. you are getting millions of people cut today on their ability to eat and feed their kids. why? because they are standing up in congress, still. don't make the banks pay taxes. don't make google and amazon and apple pay taxes. let them keep their money. >> i understand. let's talk -- let's talk about the big issue. >> it's collapsing. >> let's talk about the big issue and i think we agree on this. by the way, i agree, we shouldn't slash and burn the 12, 13, 14% and leave the big entitlement systems out of touch. you have harry reid asked in an interview about medicare and social security. he said why do you keep bringing it up? you are obsessed with it. we are not going to do anything on those. we are not going to touch those. that's where the long term -- if we want to save america from debt, that's the long term fix. >>
of earnings potential, people who could otherwise have been gainfully employed, add together tax base. could have married and held together families. and that whole structure is destroyed because we have criminalized marijuana and law enforcement has used that criminalization as a tool to whack whole generations. >> a tool but it certainly has caught a lot of people, mainly african-american and hispanic young men in a net that they don't need to be in and they shouldn't be in. >> and particularly since their usage rates are no higher -- >> you're for legalization? >> absolutely. >> obviously not for, what if people below 18? >> it should be the same as alcohol. maybe higher age. the only harm they can see thought does is in the early adolescent brain. >> brain development. >> very clear it harms adolescent brains. not clear it harms adults. >> in a much more pernicious way. that's clear. but the adult brain, occasional use of cannibis not different. >> there is a difference between medical marijuana and nonmedical marijuana? >> what do you mean? there's no difference. >> there's no differenc
's going to be able to get an i.d. that costs $22, by the way, otherwise known as a poll tax. how many 90-year-olds are going to have an assistant to be able to do that? by the way, we've also seen, a judge had to sign an affidavit to be able to vote. wendy davis, candidate for governor, had to sign an affidavit to be able to vote. greg abbott, the republican candidate for governor, had to sign an affidavit to vote, because his name on his i.d. is not the same as his name in the poll book. so we're seeing at the very least a lot of people get inconvenienced by this law. we know 600,000 to 800,000 registered voters don't have the i.d. there. can you imagine what it's going to be like in texas when wendy davis and greg abbott are running against each other for governor? >> and the greg abbott piece has the sense of poetic justice, like at least he's getting caught up in his own thing. but he has resources available to him that others don't. when you talk about abbott in texas, it's also a reminder that in virginia, the other seat that is open here, where there's a big fight. in fact, maybe
that affordability be a key component for why the government is stepping in to provide some type of tax top. that goes to the ability to continue to do a 30 year fixed rate mortgage. and i know a lot of people might say well, that's not the best product for everybody all of the time which, you know, is also true, but knowing that you know what your payment is going to be, even if you're not actually going to live in the for 30 years is a very important -- is very important to the long-term psychology i think to the consumer. so protecting the 30 year mortgage is number one. number two, and i know there's a multifamily folks in the room, we have got to recognize in this country and in this financing recreation of the financing system that there is financing available our multifamily projects, particularly non-luxury what i felt affordable with a small a. so not range restricted income restricted, the most rental housing is broadly affordable to people who are less than 80% of the median income. a third of the people rent and need a financing that supports multi-them as well. >> more than jus
this something that is new money and new tax dollars or is this something you think some conservatives will be comfortable supporting if it means new federal money? >> i think so. it's not a significant amount of money, but it is new dollars. we use a model that works. the health care centers could expand to add behavioral health. a number of them in my state and other states are doing that anyway. we have a model that works and frankly the tragedies of the last couple of years. drawing attention to this issue. we both believe we have a model that works and a moment that works. this is something that the congress could do to respond to these tragedies. after newtown late last year, the senate committee that deals with the mental health the first they had since 2007. for whatever reason this is something that is a society we haven't dealt with the way we should. it is the consistent thing and the tragedies we see. it is important to make a point here that people with mental health challenges are much more likely to be the victims than the perpetrators of crime whether it was newtown or
korea, gun rights, same-sex marriage, tax cuts, guantanamo, interrogation practices, surveillance practices iran, climate change lebanon war harriet meyers, middle east peace, syria, russia, federal spending. almost every matter of import they never saw eye to eye on. >> yeah. it was a dramatically evolved relationship. cheney was important in the beginning. never quite as single mindedly the puppet master some people might have thought. but by the end they had drifted apart. president bush wanted to try more diplomacy in his second term. he did want to rebuild res with the allies as we talked about in the last segment he tried to moderate to the some extent some counter-terrorism policies that caused controversy. vice president cheney worried that was getting away from what was most important, worried it was away from the principles they developed in the beginning after 9/11 and resisted a lot of these changes. although as he said publicly in these last few days, he didn't always win. >> one of the things you make note of is the way in which cheney dealt with bush, which was not
. it was affecting him these last couple of years. he had heard a tax several major surgeries. his schedulers started trying to make it easier, quicker and more concise. so looking back peter baker it's impossible to talk bay legacy so soon after this presidency ended but if you had to, what would you say it is? >> well, i mean, i think obviously iraq is going to be the central issue. i think what president bush would like to say is he protected the country and vice president chaney would like to say that as well. and they did get through the rest of their term without a major tack in america, something they will always be able to talk about. but iraq hovers over everything. all the other things he wanted to do medicare part d which he expanded, coverage of drugs. aids program,. all these things might have been the pieces of a very shallow legacy that iraq overshadows in so many ways. >> peter baker, the book is days of fire. brush an cheney in the white house. thank you very much. >> thank you, appreciate it. >> ifill: we close with a look back at the life of singer- songwriter lou reed, who died ye
to compete for the hispanic vote. it will give us a playing field where we can argue for lower taxes, less regulation, smaller government, strong military, et cetera. but if we don't pass it, we will not compete for the hispanic vote. >> if we don't pass it, we will not compete for the hispanic vote. do you think he's right? >> yeah, i think he's absolutely right, and i actually would make an argument for not only the hispanic vote but also for independent voters, right? so, immigration reform and the current moral crisis that exists in our community because, you know, 1,100 people are getting deported every day that president obama doesn't halt the deportations and every day the house republicans don't act on this bill. so, i think americans have tuned in to that. i think americans understand the crisis that our community is faced with every day, and they tie that to the inaction. i mean, but republicans have now this track where they have to first fail at something to then realize that it's political suicide for them to continue on that destructive path. >> that's a good point, and that
is this. obama care is not just any piece of legislation. it's not like immigration. not like a tax hike. obama care is the core of the new expansion of the liberal idea. this is sort of the continuation of the new deal. the continuation of a great society. in a sense the way liberals portrayed it, it is the completion of the entitlement state. the one element that separated us from the rest of the advanced industrial countries saying we were the only one with people who were not covered. now we're going to enter into the realm of those who insure and protect everybody. if this collapses, this huge expansion of the entitlement state, this essential nationalization of one sixth of the u.s. economy, i think that discredits the entire enterprise of the expansion of government which is at the heart of obamaism. that's why liberals are running zar escared. not just one election. it's the ideology that the government knows best, the government will take care of you. put your trust in the government or as obama said you didn't build it, the government did. it can't even construct a website. >>
consequences. sometimes you see what happens with regulations and tax code stuff. you have to go back in and make what are called technical fixes. back in the days of tip and gipper, maybe if you lost the fight you bring up a bill and say this is neutral to make this work better. . you could get it past both sides. say we want the program to work. that can't happen now. so therefore obama and the executive -- >> explain why. because you can't get the votes to do anything. >> the republicans would use that is as a way to obstruct. they have to do a lot of this with regulations they otherwise wouldn't do. and it's like throwing gum into the -- >> all these fixes they demand now, they had an opportunity to deliver on right before they got the first part of the health care plan through. then they came around reconciliation. they said we're not giving you a single vote. you've got to do it that way. anyway, republicans continue their efforts to undercut the president's authority by blocking two of its nominees for the supreme court. or the appellate court yesterday. the first was mel watt,
in my congressional district which i doubt have any homes valued at 700,000 on the county tax roles. >> in last 30 seconds you need cooperation from the senate, legislation out of the senate, the banking committee is looking at this. passed an fha reform bill and need help from the white house. what are the prospects of bipartisan fha reform and gse, fannie, freddie reform? >> relatively speaking i'm more optimistic about those prospects than other prospects. clearly the senate seems to be moving in that direction. the white house indicated they're interested. we passed a bill out of the committee, we hope to get it to the floor soon, in order to be a member of congress you have to be an optimist. >> chairman hensarling, house financial services committee. thanks for joining us. we'll be watching this. lori, adam, we'll stay here a few more minutes and do an additional series of questions for the chairman for five more minutes. post exclusively to the website, foxbusiness.com. look for that on the website a bit later. back to you. lori: peter barnes thanks for bringing us that. adam
. >> for californians who work hard, pay taxes and obey the laws, i'm suing to force the federal government to control the border. and i'm working to deny state services to illegal immigrants. enough is enough. >> governor pete wilson. >> hard line immigration rhetoric. it is standard fare in republican primaries today. in 1994, this was something kind of new. in a way wilson and his fellow california republicans pioneered its modern use. 1994 was the year they put proposition 187 on the ballot, which sought to ban illegal immigrants and children from receiving state services including health care and public education. and it was political gold, proposition 187 passed, and pete wilson came from behind to win by double digits. it was also, for wilson and california republicans, the beginning of the end. california was a changing state, in the midst of a demographic overhaul. california of 1994 was barely one quarter latino, today that number is around 40%, back then fewer than 10% of the state was asian-american. today it is nearly 15%. 27% of the state's residents are foreign born. california is now o
plans it's tough to do that when you don't have the website to survey those new plans. the average tax subsidy you can get to buy this type of insurance is about $2700 which can offset some of this increased cost. that might lessen the blow to some people except they don't know that because they can't get to the website that tells them this is the savings they are allowed to have. there's a whole host of problems compounding one another for the administration. this can change over time but at this moment you have the sense that, you know, this is just one great mess that administration has to figure out a way to deal with. >> encourage everyone to read lisa's report. she and her team put together a lot of news. another big story not only allies upset over the agency's wiretapping, senator diane feinstein is calling for a full review of the mass data collection at home and abroad. the california democrat who chairs the senate intelligence committee said she's opposed to spying on u.s. allies. according to senator feinstein congress has not been adequately kept in the loop. feinstein sai
